At the Emergency Services Show in September Primetech will be showcasing a new and more powerful multi-agency version of its Resilient Communications Trailer - to be known as the Self Contained Communications Trailer.
The Self Contained Communications Trailer will be fulfilling a requirement for a communications trailer that contains a range of high power communications systems to support multi-agency operations. It includes a multi frequency mobile satellite broadband system (Ka, Ku and X-Band through one receiver), a self-healing COFDM Mesh network, MODAS Incident Command Solution on MDT's, and an 8-metre mast capable of supporting a wide range of different frequencies and radio systems - UHF, VHF, TETRA - plus VoIP, digital television, satellite phones etc.
All of these systems, plus a silent running generator, are being housed in a robust, waterproof, long-life co-polymer pod (a variation on the Primetech MultiPod) carried on a trailer that can be towed by non-specialist vehicles and drivers, both on- and off-road.
The Self Contained Communications Trailer has multi-agency interoperability built into its DNA. Many emergency services are now looking at specifying similar units for their own fleets.
Towable by vehicles of any kind, the Primetech Self Contained Communications Trailer is a flexible and resilient communications unit that can deliver high bandwidth capability, in any location, via an auto-seeking combined Ka/Ku/X-Band satellite system, with multi-VPN automatic 3G failover and wireless communications from a 5 metre pneumatic mast. Units can be customised to satisfy individual service requirements.
- Trailers are easily towed and manoeuvred, allowing mobile satellite broadband and wireless comms to be taken into sites not easily reached by larger mobile command vehicles.
- Use of the trailer frees up larger command vehicles, essential during large-scale, wide area multi-site and multi-agency emergencies.
- Trailers are self-contained versatile, resilient units capable of delivering high bandwidth capability via an auto-seeking satellite system, multi-VPN, automatic 3G failover unit.
- Trailers feature 5-metre pneumatic masts delivering powerful wireless communications to support improved emergency management by emergency service teams.
